In our Year 8 curriculum, we have been engaged in a comprehensive study of World War One, specifically focusing on exploring its causes. A significant aspect of our examination involved analysing the various posters used to encourage men to enlist in the volunteer army at the outset of the war. These posters employed diverse strategies, including appeals to patriotism, excitement and adventure, guilt, and animosity towards the enemy.
As a homework assignment, pupils were tasked with creating their own recruitment poster based on one of these thematic approaches. I am pleased to share that we received several exceptional submissions, with notable contributions from Jacob, Mason, and Danny. Their efforts truly stood out and deserve recognition.
